An irresistible book for cricket fans - Australia's leading cricket writer on the tour of a lifetime.

The 2006-07 Ashes tour is the most feverishly anticipated in many years. An English team will meet an Australian one determined to take back the Ashes on its home turf. Sparks will fly, in front of massive crowds.

This book will be the definitive record of that encounter - the thrills, clashes and key events. It will contain all of Gideon Haigh's day-by-day writing for the Guardian- match reports, profiles, analyses and more.
